The newly-forming Joomla! Marketing Working Group is currently looking for new active members from the Joomla community to join our team.

If you know a fellow Joomla community member who has experience in marketing and would be available and suitable for the position, please nominate him or her - you can also nominate yourself.  If you are nominating someone else, please make sure that you've asked their permission.

Please keep in mind that this is *not* a voting contest: asking all your acquaintances to nominate or vote for you doesn't give you any bonus points :-)
